"For several years, I have actively supported societal entrepreneurs working in the areas of personal development and societal change. To enable these very important social actors and change-agents to meet, be creative and to co-create under the same roof was a natural, next step.
I have a strong belief that this type of meeting-point creates conditions to naturally meet other individuals and organisations, broadening their networks and strengthen each other, which in turn increases their own ability to influence outside world. This creates momentum in their work and make that change occur more rapidly. It’s like a ripple effect. "
"We know that the world's complexity and interconnection is increasing, but we don’t know where the changes will take us - will we be facing a safer or a more uncertain and polarized the future? I am convinced that we can tip the systems to more prosperous and sustainable directions. Probably not by ourselves, but surely together with like-minded people.
This is why the companies and foundations I'm involved in are sitting here. To inspire and be inspired, grow and cross-pollinate with some of the sharpest minds in the country on some of the most currently important issues. "
"Through personal development and methods for better self-management, the Ekskäret Foundation works for a society in which individuals create more well-being for themselves, their organisations and the society at large. Together with other companies and organisations at the Ekskäret Klustret, we contribute with our different insights and experiences to the opportunities and challenges we are currently experiencing.
To co-create the necessary momentum for change, I believe a certain amount of humbleness, curiosity and above all a willingness to explore is required by us all. I believe that this has contributed to the positive force that I feel at Klustret. We reinforce each other and have a strong belief in each individual’s ability to develop."
"Before I discovered Klustret, I often felt alone in trying to understand whole systems, as well as in my wish to create change within these systems to better be able to create real benefit.
At Klustret I meet people everyday who inspire, support and challenge me in my thinking and my willingness to take leadership. It is these individuals that make the context so unique and stimulating. Here, people work with evidence-based knowledge and a high ability to deal with complexity. That, combined with a strong sense of values and a genuine desire to help each other, making Klustret much more than just a workplace. It is a community and a platform to expand perspectives and co-create sustainable systems around us."
"I am passionate about a society with more compassion and empathy towards our fellow human beings, to ourselves and to our planet.
At Klustret, I find people who are driven by the same values as I am. Every day, I meet skilled people with a high level of commitment and social change in focus. In an environment designed to meet, co-create, inspire, challenge, we learn and develop together. It gives me the opportunity to keep my direction, passion and momentum in what I do. "
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed individuals can change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." Margaret Mead
This is a great quote that sums up the energy, the context, the individuals and organisations that are part of Klustret, a place where we are passionate about re-creating a society that we all want to be part of.”
"Our members influence individuals, organisations and the society towards more consciousness."
